Hi! I'm Emily Ann Peterson

singer-songwriter, author & creative consultant


as seen in...


I teach bravery to courageous creatives.

(people who crave all things beautiful, strong, sacred, and sensual • love feeling really alive & hate feeling stagnant • need to make stuff & are never satisfied • struggle to remember what hope feels like, deeply yearn for something secret • look for a life filled with meaning • are totally over being bored & are really into creativity for people who are ready to really connect.)


I do this through...


my book Bare Naked Bravery: How to Be Creatively Creative was a #1 Amazon bestseller!


I have 3 albums out right now and 1 album waiting in the wings.


Check out my next concerts and learn about house concerts.

When I'm not doing all that, I am... 

traveling around the globe • consulting remotely for a handful of marketing clients in tech and small business • drinking boxed wine with my closest friends • writing stream-of-consciousness daily • making to-do lists •impatiently waiting for the latest picture of my nieces.

I used to...

be a full-time cellist and cello teacher. I loved every bit of it.

But in December of 2013, I was diagnosed with a degenerative, hereditary, neurological tremor in my right hand, my bow hand.

I call it my other biological clock.

As you can imagine, it's been life-altering... in some of the best and worst ways.

Because of this, I now write and perform my songs on piano and my great grandpa's tenor guitar.

And... here are some things that make me cry:
